drifting directions:

enter corner at a somewhat high speed
turn towards outside of corner before apex (shift weight)
stomp on the verticle pedal on the right
cut hard into inside of corner
as the back end swings out counter steer while still holding down the gas pedal

practice in an open area before atempting this in populated areas

You can't drift with a FWD like a RWD or AWD don't even try with that prelude cause mine prelude ended up on my neighbors front yard LOL no more FWD for me. True sport car are all RWD or AWD. Nascar F1 need I say more?

:driving Say if you’re making a 90 degree left before you enter the apex stay on the outside (I donno what gear you need with auto but stay at least @4000+ RPM) quick swing your car to the right feel the car shift then swing the car left at the same time step on the brake to dip your nose (don’t hold the brake) also at the same time gas it now this will make you drift crash or not is all up to you. PS use the force feel the car. :lmao2

I also suggest doing it in slightly damp or wet parking lots. Its much easier to break tractions and i a lot more forgiving on your tires.
